"What Do You Wish..." -Topic for July 25, 2013

This week's topic was suggested by Penguin art director Giuseppe Castellano via Twitter.

(Giuseppe gives out a lot of great advice regarding a career in children's illustration via #arttips. If you're not following him, you should be! You can find him: @pinocastellano  )

Giuseppe wants to know "What do you wish your art school would have taught you that would have better prepared you for your career in illustration?"

Not all of us went to art school, so we'd also like to ask "What do you wish you had known at the beginning of your journey into children's illustration?"

There's a lot of meaty detail to get into for sure. We can't wait to discuss it with you! See you Thursday night at 9pm EAST, 8pm CST, 6pm PST. Don't forget to use tweetchat.com or tweetdeck. It makes the chat much easier to follow.

See you then.
